there's a movie that's so in your face for three hours. when it's over, there's no question why i was applauding, they were shouting at me for three hours, i wanted to shout back. >> i agree with you, it was tough as a movie, because it still belongs on the stage. my son was in it in high school. i love this play, i love the music. i thought that hathaway was great and hugh jackman was great, and i thought everybody tried, even poor russell crowe, because he shouldn't have been in that part, in a film drama, he would have been great, but in the singing part, he couldn't pull it off. but have you ever seen actors work harder and be more passionately committed to a movie? >> listen, i want anne hathaway to get that oscar, do you know why? can you imagine having to lose all that weight, to have your hair plucked off, so you looked like a chicken when you sang, and have a camera in tight on your face when you're trying to sing an octave higher than your natural register and pull it off, that's some mighty fine oscar bait.
